Anaheim, California (May 29, 2014) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce that its PVS 405D PoleVault Digital Switcher has received the ENERGY STAR qualification for AV products. The switcher includes two Extron-exclusive power saving modes designed to lower energy usage and reduce operating costs. Auto Power Save Mode automatically turns off the audio amplifier after 30 minutes if no audio is present. Network Standby Power Save Mode turns off the amplifier, wallplates, VoiceLift receiver, and network switch, and can be scheduled at specific times when the system is not in use or activated by monitoring for when the projector is shut down.The PVS 405D is at the heart of Extron's new PoleVault Digital Systems, a family of complete, easy-to-use AV switching and control systems that seamlessly integrate digital and analog video sources.

"Many educational institutions are looking for ways to provide enhanced student experiences while also keeping an eye on operating expenses,” says Casey Hall, Extron Vice President of Sales and Marketing for North America. "PoleVault Digital Systems enable school districts to meet the technology demands of the 21st century classroom, while also consuming less energy."

Each PoleVault Digital system contains all the necessary audio and video switching, audio amplification, system control, input wallplates, mounting hardware, and cabling for a complete classroom AV solution. All that remains is to add a video projector, screen or flat panel display, and sources.The unique PoleVault, PlenumVault, and WallVault enclosures secure critical components from tampering and theft above the projector, in a suspended ceiling, or on a wall.
